The total number of coronavirus cases in the United States for November surpassed four million on Saturday, more than double the record set in October of 1.9 million cases.
“We are on track to continue this accelerated pace of the epidemic and see even more speed of rise of cases because of the movement indoors, of activities around the country and because large numbers of people have moved around the country for the holidays,” said Tom Inglesby, the director of the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins University.
More than 170,000 people in the United States are now testing positive on an average day. The country’s overall total, from the start of the pandemic, is over 13 million infections.
The U.S. reported more than 273.000 coronavirus deaths.
